National Senior Citizens Day
National Senior Citizens Day on August 21st was proclaimed in 1988 by President Ronald Reagan to celebrate and honor our elderly population. Our older population is increasing due to better healthcare enabling our seniors to contribute more to our families and communities. In August make an effort to spend more time with a senior. This month of August is the perfect opportunity to surprise them with a healthcare item to help them maintain a degree of independence; a pillow, a cushion, a cane, a walker, etc.
